Calypso Hops Pellets
Oh, how the Calypso hop captivates her audience. Gorgeous, soft floral aroma lands with an overt kick of dried apple, pear and citrus.
Described as unlike any other hop that has come before it, Calypso offers brilliant flavor and aroma, covering a wide spectrum of specific descriptors: lemons, cherry blossoms, black pepper, bitter orange, mint, hints of tropical fruit and sappy, pronounced pear.
Calypso, with its versatile, evolving character and markedly smooth bittering makes for incredible beer across a range of styles. Fruity notes add crisp flavor to Pale Ales and IPAs, yet an overall complex profile adds depth to Stouts, British Bitters and especially Barleywines.
High in alpha acids and brimming with a flavor-aroma combination all its own, Calypso is a beguiling dual-purpose hop that begs for experimentation.Alpha acid: 12.0 - 14.0%
Cohumulone: 40 -- 42%
Beta acids: 5.0 -- 6.0%
Total Oil: 1.6 -- 2.5 mL/ 100g
Myrcene: 30 -- 45%
Humulene: 20 -- 35%
Humulene / Caryophyllene: 9.0 - 15%

Pair a fair amount of Calypso hops (4 pkg for a 6 gallon batch) with a nice Omega Tropical yeast and you will have a truly spectacular IPA.
One of my favorite hops to experiment with, the fruit notes can really come through - have used on lagers, graffs and blondes where fruit is used to add extra fruit notes. Would definitely recommend.
Used in a Golden ale flavored with pear. Still sitting in secondary, so will have to see how they taste comes through. Packaging and shipment was quality.
Super smooth hops! Lots of fruit flavor upfront! Need to use alot to have a true IPA taste
I used 2 0z in a 3 gallon SMASH. Calypso has an amazing aroma of tropical fruit. I mainly got mango , papaya , and grapefruit. Will do a repeat of this.
